It's a process....but it's progress.





















Hope you all had a great weekend. It's the weekend! Yay! It's honestly been a brutal week on my end. So much I wanted to get done but didn't. We had a pipe burst! Oh the fun! Had a check and other important bills lost in the mail. Hmm,what else. Oh also went to file taxes and couldn't that got delayed due to my drivers license being expired and they had to have the actual plastic card so that won't happen for a couple weeks. It's been a week of ups and downs mainly downs if I'm being totally honest. Please next week be kind to me...please. Anyhow I did want to show you the progress up until this point. Not sure what I want to do when it's done sell it hang on to it for camping, or turn it into a sewing studio and office. Who knows. Life's a journey, not a destination right? Only time will tell.

Here is the progress so far...

My vintage chair I love that I got for $5 at a church rummage sale. My six your old made the red pillow.

My little office set up
I did the flooring myself. I should have took a before pic, but honestly it was awful, some of it was tile, the other part was carpet that was just gross... take my word for it.

This flooring was so easy to install and @ only .69 a tile, an amazing value and turned out beautiful.


More updates to come. I'm going to be painting the walls antique white doing the counter top, back splash, de-doing the bedroom area with chevron print bedding and head board. Lot's to be done to get it where I want it. Also trying to sell two cars. I want to get an SUV. Just need something bigger than my tiny little Chevy Malibu Maxx.

Tiny house plans, life update

So this is where we are at along our journey. So far we have painted almost everything. I'm pretty impressed with the price of this paint. $5 for one gallon. For those of you that don't know. Go with the oops paint. It's the paint that someone had mixed and then changed their mind. For me I really didn't care so much about the color because I was just using it as a base. More like a primer just to get things covered, cover the ugly wood paneling look and then prepare for a beautiful antique white. This is what it looks like so far, this is the front area. I just did the flooring yesterday, although not done with living area. This is a little sewing, office area which serves it's purpose and is very functional. So far it's working well. 

This is the step ( need to install the trim for the edge). This is the bathroom area. Bath tub off to the left. and sink off to the right. More pics to come when I'm done with bathroom
So total spent on paint and flooring and accessories. Around $85. Not too bad.  It's going to take another 2 boxes of flooring @ $23 each ab ox which isn't bad ,from Lowe's These are the peel and stick tiles, which are super easy to install you just have to lay them down to see where you want them then stick, use a box cutter to trim excess and voila! New Floor!
